Halloween Dollhouse Fun

I haven't really prepared the dollhouse for Halloween this year, but that is only because I have been so busy with custom orders...not that I am complaining :).

Anyway, I couldn't let the festivities pass me by, and since less is more, and miniatures really say that better than anything else, I thought of getting you in the Halloween mood with a fun picture. 

Can you spot the ghosts?...no?...I thought so :)

Happy Halloween everyone!

Honey, Yogurt Panna Cotta With Pears and Pistachios



I am especially proud of a miniature delicacy I have just finished a few weeks ago, therefore I couldn't resist the urge to share it with you guys. 

I set out to make something especially delicate and sweet, and could think of nothing better than  yogurt panna cotta, with pistachios and delicious pears. It took some extra time on my part (that I have to admit), and I couldn't quite tell you how I managed to produce the tinniest pistachios in the world, but somehow it was all done, at the usual 1:12/1'' scale.








And in the end I was really sorry to see it go (as you guessed it, the piece has already been snatched away by a true dollhouse aficionado), but I snapped some pictures just in time, so I have something to show for it.
